MS Security Essentials 2.0 fails to install

    Question

  • I'm running 64-bit WES7 E and can't install MS Security Essentials 2.0.  The installer reports the error "Microsoft Security Essentials cannot be installed on your operating system.  Your version of the Windows operating system is not supported by this program"

    If it installs on Windows 7 why not WES7?

  • Have you tried contacting the MS Security team to see why they don't support WES7?

    I'm interested in this too. Do you have a link where to ask the MSE team?

  • What is if you extract the installer and try to run epp.msi, mp_ambits.msi or setup.exe out from the architecture folder?

  • I haven't tried that. I found an installer for the old v1 version I was still having around. Though it's an installer for XP, it did install and runs without any issues so far.

    FWIW ... I'll try your suggestion in the next few days.

  • It doesn't work. But, as you know, it will be made available in the future.

  • You still can edit the MSI files (which i guess is the component which checks the system) with ORCA or any other MSI develeopment tool/editor.
